A Shoutout on RDA

I got a whole bunch of hits on my post yesterday about how terrifying RDA is. I'm really, really interested in what people are thinking about RDA. I've been to the webinars, I've talked to people, but honestly, if you have an opinion on RDA, could you please post it in the comments of this post or the last? I have very mixed feelings, but I'm not gonna be at any focus groups anytime soon, so I'd like to hear what you all are thinking.

I have been cataloging in RDA as part of the test group of institutions, and after the testing period, my institution continues on in RDA under certain situations (mostly originals). I don't find RDA to be quite as bad as some folks are putting it out to be--as with any standard it will take some time for various questions to be asked and decisions made, but it is useable as I use it, at this point.
